Eddie Izzard - Great Expectations Tickets

Garrick Theatre

Comedian and actor Eddie Izzard plays 19 characters in a truly unique one-woman retelling of Charles Dickens’ classic novel.

Eddie Izzard’s Dickensian one-woman play

Beloved, boundary-pushing comedian and actor Eddie Izzard brings a new staging of Charles Dickens’ classic novel, Great Expectations to the West End this year. Performing all the roles herself, this one-woman show is a unique opportunity to catch Izzard’s acting skills live.

Great Expectations at the Garrick Theatre is the Victorian tale we are all familiar with, populated by larger-than-life characters including orphan Pip, escaped convict Magwitch, beautiful but distant Estella, and the iconic jilted bride, Miss Havisham.

Izzard assumes the role of every character in a commanding performance that was first seen in New York. No stranger to the stage, she is well-known for her whimsical, self-referential comic style that has propelled her career through sold-out tours and a spot as one of the UK’s most loved comedians. She has previously acted on stage in A Day in the Death of Joe Egg on Broadway, earning a Tony Award nomination for her performance.

Book Eddie Izzard Great Expectations tickets and enjoy a commanding performance of this tale of mystery, rivalries, unrequited love and redemption.

A sublime Eddie Izzard performance. Whether well versed with the story or not as audience, the key narrative is carefully paced, clear to follow and cleverly communicated. Some very touching moments along with humour. So very glad I was lucky enough Read more

One of my favourite actors/comedians, so am definitely biased, but hugely enjoyed the show. Eddie brought depth to the text, balancing drama with humour and physical story telling that they do so well. Definitely recommend.

An incredible one woman show re-telling Great Expectations by Dickens. Eddie/Suzy relayed the story, mainly as Pip, but introduced all the other characters by way of conversation within the story. She portrayed each character with a different voice, Read more
